Help us fight mining injustices here and abroad
Open for Justice

Can you believe Sefwi farmers in Ghana are still fighting to obtain fair compensation from a Canadian gold firm a decade after their farms were destroyed to make way for the mine? Let’s put an end to situations like this. Inter Pares is currently raising money to help fight such injustices. Your donations will support the Sefwi farmers in their efforts to obtain justice; sustain the work of our counterpart Third World Network-Africa to improve mining industry regulation and enforcement and help us continue working with Canadians to hold unscrupulous Canadian mining firms accountable.

Irene Fernandez: death of a long-term Malaysian activist
Irene Fernandez

Inter Pares is deeply saddened by the death of Irene Fernandez, Malaysian activist and long-time Inter Pares collaborator. Irene was a tireless campaigner for the rights of migrant workers and refugees, starting and leading several advocacy organizations despite facing consistent government harassment for her work. In 1991, she founded Tenaganita (“Women’s Force”) to confront abuses of women migrant workers, and which now coordinates Inter Pares support to Burmese refugees in Malaysia. In 2005 she received the international Right Livelihood Award, often called “the alternative Nobel prize”.

Las Pavas: The struggle for land
